Some Aston Villa fans definitely don’t fancy Sam Allardyce

Aston Villa are still searching for their next manager.

Steve Bruce was sacked following the 3-3 draw with Preston North End last week, which brought to an end his two-year reign at the Midlands club.

The pressure finally told for the ex-Hull City boss, with the board relieving him of his duties.

Villa were beaten 2-1 by Millwall at the weekend, as caretaker boss Kevin MacDonald stepped into the hot seat.

The defeat suggested that the Villa players need someone to come in sooner rather than later to steady the ship, and get them to kick on after a poor start.

Some names being linked with the job are John Terry, Rui Faria and Dean Smith.

Thierry Henry was also supposedly in the running, but he is now set to join AS Monaco according to the latest reports.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has also been linked, but the ex-Liverpool manager ruled himself out.

Sam Allardyce expresses interest

One man who appears to be interested in the vacancy at Villa Park is Sam Allardyce.

Speaking on Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT, he said: “I’m not too sure whether I fancy the Aston Villa job at the moment – I’m watching football, travelling the world.

“But I suppose if there is any contact, like anybody else, I would talk to them.

“I would speak to them.”

The wrong choice

Allardyce knows a lot about saving teams from the threat of relegation. He isn’t so experienced when it comes to dragging a team up into the Premier League from the Championship – although he did manage to do it once with West Ham United in 2012.

Allardyce’s brand of football is not dissimilar to that of Bruce’s, which the majority of Villa fans grew tired of.

Villa need a younger man at the helm who is full of fresh ideas and can implement an attractive brand that will bring about positive results.

Some Villa fans definitely don’t want him

There has been a big reaction to Allardyce linking himself with the job, and some Villa supporters are against him succeeding Bruce:
